I was very lucky to get table on a Monday evening, as I'm told this restaurant is very popular. Do not be fooled by the façade of Tapenades, on entering the restaurant, I had a lovely surprise, a warm and cosy interior, good smells coming from the kitchen and a fantastic host, Mike. I immediately felt relaxed here, even as... More

A lovely experience. Perfect food, perfect service and the owners obviously take a hands on approach and are very proud of their place, and rightly so. We had a great time. It isn't cheap but you do get what you pay for. A place to go for a really 'special' occasion.

This will be the 4th or 5th five star review I've given Tapenards, and rightly so! Everything is always perfect, every time we come as a family (6 of us) nobody can fault the evening. I'm lucky to live only a five minute walk away.

Excellent food, lovely atmosphere, warm welcome. There really isn't anything that we could be critical of - one of the nicest restaurants we have been to.

As usual the food and welcome was outstanding, we visited on Sunday 12th February as an early valentine meal due to work commitments on 14th! My husband and I both had the scallop starter which follows after the wonderful homemade selection of breads and flavoured butters. This was followed by an amuse bouche of sorbet, delicious. I chose the lamb... More

At Tapenades we offer a selection of Cornish Fish, Meat and Vegetarian dishes from the a la carte menu which changes with each season. Sourcing Local produce where possible and preparing each dish fresh allowing the opportunity for our guests to swap the appropriate courses around. Each booking has the luxury of taking their time as only one sitting is taken per night and booking is recommended. Proud to host the Liskeard Rotary club on every Wednesday and only shut on Tuesdays means the restaurant is available to book 5 days of the week from Thursday to Monday inclusive. Private Lunches of 10 or more are also available. Ring for details.
